Extending the alternatives to protesting
Saturday, November 20, 2010 3:19:06 PM
As part of the implementation of the RYA charter by the club, we make provision for using the Exoneration Penalty, Arbitration Hearings, Advisory hearings and Protest hearings. The aim to hold Advisory and Arbitration hearings after sailing on the day that they are requested, and Protest hearings within a week. We encourage all competitors to take the appropriate on water penalty as their first option if they break a rule, but if there is a dispute as to whether a rule was broken, then Advisory or Arbitration hearings offer a fast and friendly way to find out.
